Volunteers are a critical part of our mission of protecting children and preserving families. Each volunteer, whether individual, group, or mentor, brings with them a passion for serving others. Our goal is to provide a meaningful experience to all volunteers every time you participate in an activity or event, regardless of frequency.
Hear from Emma Gilbert, a volunteer from TCU:
ACH partners with TCU’s Child Development department and offers students real-life experience serving and cultivating relationships with vulnerable children in the community. Emma was first connected to ACH through one of her classes in August 2021. ACH Volunteer Services Manager shares, “Emma did a great job. She was the only person from TCU who came into the Residential Treatment Center to volunteer, and it was very successful. She is youthful and can relate well to our teens.” Emma is a double major at TCU in Child Development and Psychology. Volunteers like Emma with the heart and passion to care for the youth in our care are an essential part of fulfilling our mission. It takes a community.
